Dallas Young Professionals Volunteer
Allison Blake, Water/Wastewater Treatment; Sarah Caudle, Transportation; and Emily Nancarrow, North Texas Admin, Dallas used their lunch hour to volunteer at the Perot Museum Of Science and Nature in February. As part of Engineers Week, ASCE invited elementary and middle school students to the museum for interactive demonstrations and experiments with professional engineers and educators.
Allison, Sarah and Emily helped the students construct penny bridges, which challenged participants to build a bridge out of a piece of paper and some paper clips. The students then tested bridge strength by trying to place 100 pennies on their creations.
